Though it has been discussed, it's a sensitive issue and I can't simply
conclude. However, considering your post, I'll try my best.

Here's how I concludeed about this part:
alt_name=Arabian Gulf;Gulf of Iran;Gulf of Basra
> 2. What key:name to use for the Iranian and Arabian preference ?
alt_name:fa=خلیج عربی؛ خلیج ایران؛ خلیج بصره
alt_name:ar=الخلیج فارسي؛ الخلیج ایراني؛ خليج البصرة
I'm waiting for everyone (especially DWG members) to give their opinion
on these in order to close this issue.
